ROTFLMAO!

The machine from the Closet of Anxieties under my desk, the single core 800MHz job that supports, as I said, Bind/DNS, DHCP, fetchmail, VNC server and xfce, SSHD, Postfix, Dovecot and NFS, is now running with just 500M[1]. I saw the load average go up to this morning while running fetchmail though spamassassin, 16 NFS mounts active, mail flowing out. It actually reached 0.9.


named:
PID USER PR NI VIRT RES SHR S %CPU %MEM TIME+ COMMAND
9596 named 20 0 386m 23m 1448 S 0.0 0.3 0:27.43 named

dnsmasq:
PID USER PR NI VIRT RES SHR S %CPU %MEM TIME+ COMMAND

That's the proof. And yes, I have run named in a 32 MB machine, I know it works.

The other reason you forget, is that bind is a hasle to setup and configure. I have done it, and I don't want to do it unless I really need it.

And no, name service in Windows is even more complex. I do not use it unless they pay me.
